PREFACE TO 1919-20 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged useful information regarding Buteshire 
•as it is to-day — with its Officials, Householders and Busi- 
ness people — and once again have pleasure in giving the 
compilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain, economies, and consider- 
able increases in the prices of material, labour and conces- 
sions consequent upon the Great War, we have made 
sacrifices to produce our Directory as full as formerly — 
but we had to advance the tariff. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we keep 
permanent this decided benefit. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the public libraries of Scotland, England, Ire- 
land and Wales, and also in numerous business houses and 
agencies in busy centres ; and we are particularly anxious 
that nothing of benefit to Buteshire be omitted, but that 
all interests have a good show, and everything be brought 
thoroughly up to date. 

[For a number of years we have corresponded, by the 
International Language, with persons in all civilised lands, 
and in our spare pages we give glimpses of our experiences 
— which we hope will be interesting and instructive.] 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the upheavals of the 
great world war, our country as well as the glorious British 
Empire still remains intact ; and will, by righteous and 
strenuous endeavours, recuperate, and assist the world to 
makeup for the "years that the locusts have eaten," and 
are not yet satisfied.

Esperanto.— This wonderful International Language is already used for 
Business and Pleasure in all parts nf the world. Mr Higgie, being an official of the 
Universal Esperanto Association, is in touch with important regions all over the world, 
and regularly corresponds with persons everywhere — notwithstanding their different 
national languages. 

This auxiliary language anticipates the happy time when there will be " Peace 
on earth and good will to men, ' which is coining yet in spite of the present times of 
"'great tribulation." Itsefficacv in tracing missing friends and making new ones wa» 
repeatedly evidenced ;in the recent terrible War. 

Anticipating the boom in International Trading after the World War, experi- 
ments by means of inter-correspondence in Esoeranto are being made by business firms 
throughout the world with eminently satisfactory results. It is not the tyrants but the 
•'meek who shall inherit the earth" The blatant, self-righteous and arrogant despots 
have been overthrown. Righteousness is beiug exalted, and friuhtfulness loathed. The 
league of nations is coming, when harmony and good will shall begin become universal.

Parish of North Bute. 

' PHIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Bannatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Banuockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891.

THE GREAT CREATOR OF ALL made of one blood all races of Humanity on

against it." The confusion of tongues at Babel is being followed by the gift of the 
perfect language foretold by Zephaniah. The walls of Jericho fell before the sounding 
of the rams' horns at the command of Joshua, and the lingual walls which have hither-

"all people that on earth do dwell "—whatever their creeds, colours or idiosyncrasies —

Esperanto, like English, is made up from other languages : its roots are taken 
from the same jungle, but scientifically treated in a garden pro bono publico. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh in 
1915, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to San Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a Tuta 
Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11a Tuta Mondo Esperanto Kongreso. 

Esperanto — the language of peace on Earth and universal brotherhood — is steadily 
spreading. It is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
does the work of all. On the Continent during the Great War it was an incalculable 
blessing to Red Cross work aad tracing the missing, it was a veritable open sesame 
to everything good. It is more easily learned than the alphabets of some languages, 
and as it has no politics, religion, or physical force or selfish aims of any nation, but 
is pie-eminently pro bono publico,, and is peculiarly fitted for cementing and making 
permanent and happy the coming league of nations.

With a view to this scientifically-evolved and easily-acquired Lang- 
uage becoming the means of intercommunication after the War, 
business people in several countries are satisfactorily preparing for 
" the good time coming." Britons learned Esperanto sooner than 
they could the Russian alphabet, and foreigners acquire a fluent 
use of Esperanto long, long before they can understand our words 
and the fickle and changing sounds of the letters of our adopted 
alphabet.

CHARMoftlieH 



A SPRIG of SCOTS HEATHER is as lightly thought of at 
hame as a drink of cold water (of which there is more than 
enough to spare), hut it is an inspiration and a valued reminder 
of the pleasantest of memories to Scots and their friends abroad. 

We produced a Victory Commemoration Bookmark, which, 
issued privately since the Armistice, has been a very appropriate 
and acceptable gift among friends — old and new. We are pre- 
paring another for the peace celebrations. 



Remember Friends Abroad. 

While enjoying holidays remember to gather sprigs to send to 
friends abroad, or in response to appeals you will see in leading 
Scottish weekly newspapers. 

We have for years sent boxfulls of heather to friends and so- 
cieties abroad. We responded to one or two newspaper appeals 
last year, and the following is one of the acknowledgments we re- 
ceived :, — 

East London, C. P., So. Africa, 18th Dec, 1918. 
Mr George Higgie, 22 Bridge St., Rothesay, Scotland. 

On behalf of the East London Caledonian Society I wish to thank you for being 
so kind in responding to my appeal for heather, which was sold on our Patron Saint's 
Day, and realised the very handsome sum of £265 5/11, and has been forwarded to 
the fund for disabled Sailors and Soldiers The heather was received in first-class 
condition, and was much prized, — Yours faithfully, James Forbes, 

Convener of Heather Committee. 

It is not only Scots abroad that enjoy a sprig of something that actually grew 
at hame. The Glasgow ' Evening Times,' while the above acknowledgment was on the 
ocean, printed the following ; — " Flower girls in Argyle Street are making brave dis- 
play with the mimosa, which comes to us from the Continent before the swallows or 
even the daffodils dare. It is one of the indications, after the shortest day, that 
somewhere the sun is shining, and that winter is waning. Australians in town ar» 
greatly cheered by the golden glory, for the mimosa is the wattle of their homeland, 
carrying with it the same significance as the heather to a Scot abroad." 

Colonial sailors and soldiers, while on furlough in this country, have thanked us 
personally for sending them souvenirs of Scotland when far away ; while those who 
art still on service have expressed their appreciation by post. 

The exchange of national floral emblems will yet become ex- 
ceedingly popular. 

Higgie & Co., Printers & Publishers, Rothesay. 



The Isle of Appan. 

THIS island, the largest, in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length, 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed interesting 
sheep dog trials

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY ADVERTISEMENT. 



The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in trade. 

The earliest publications connected with Jlothe 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes the Burgh of 
Rothesay (where it has long been most appreci- 
ated), but embraces the whole County of Bute 
(from which more interest is solicited.) 

Owing to the increased prices of material and 
wages, we have been compelled to raise our tariff 
with this issue.

THE MIRACULOUS GIFT OF TONGUES, on that memor- 
able Pentecost, after the Resurrection — when the Disciples 
met, with one accord, in one place in Jerusalem — caused very 
much amazement, which the unco-wise attributed to intoxica- 
tion (!) The Apostles then preached the Gospel to persons from 
" all nations under heaven " in the languages of the countries from 
whence they came. Read the desciiption in Acts II. 

ESPERANTO is also a wonderful means of inter-communi- 
cation among- the nations, and more suited to the enlarged know- 
ledge and increased human activity of the present time, with its 
wide outlook and inviting potentialities. The blind and dumb, as 
well as the seeing and hearing, can now intelligently speak and 
write to all who believe, and act upon the belief, of the fraternity 
of the human race. It is like an ordinnry electric current running 
through all who join hands. It does away with the necessity for 
learning foreign languages. Its coming, its purity and its blessed 
efficacy are foretold in Holy Writ. Though it is not named, it* 
sources, and the nationality of its inventor, are clearly indicated. 
It is as free as the air we breathe, and owes its origin and propa- 
ganda to no creed, craft or physical force, but it is going to bring 
the human race together as a happy family, and work together in 
harmony like a well-balanced choir. Read Zephaniah III, 9; and 
Zechariah VIII, 23. 

The five Books of Moses, the Psalms of David, the Proverbs 
of Solomon, and remaining portions of the Old Testament have 
been translated by the inventor (Dr Zamenhof, a Polish Jew), and 
others, and printed ; while the New Testament has been printed 
by the National Bible Society of Scotland, and the British and 
Foreign Bible Society, and circulated and read in every civilised 
country in the World. 

The Almighty Creator and Preserver overrules all things for 
His glory and the well-being of His creatures. " Let us make a 
chain." 

More than the Bible foretell the Good Times Coming.

ESPERANTO HOLIDAY-MAKERS' 
FIRST EXCURSION TO SCOTLAND. 



After the 3rd International Esperanto Congress — at Cambridge. 
England in September, 1907, — the members had excursions to 
London, Scotland and Wales— each full of interest, and long to be 
remembered by those who took part in them. The coming " World's 
National Anthem," ("Estintaj Tagoj," — "Auld Langsyne,") was sung 
(in Esperanto, of course), at the Congress, before dispersing. While 
enjoying a pleasure sail in one cf the many pleasure steamers round 
the Island of Bute, the " samideanoj " from other lands had the great 
delight of singing this Scots song in the original Doric tongue, in which 
it was composed by the Poet Burns in the 18th century. The Scots 
words were printed by means of Esperanto letters.* The music was sup- 
plied by a band aboard, and the chorus, particularly, went off with a "go"' 
that astonished the Scots. (Very few knew that the song had been 
sung at the Congress -in the lingvo interncia). This is not the only 
Scottish song translated into Esperanto. Not to go outside the limits 
of these 70 visitors, representing eight nationalities, they heard " Sweel 
Rothesay Bay" sung while admiring that beautiful scene, and were each 
presented, by Mr Geo. Higgie, with a picture post card, on which was 
printed, in Esperanto, a translation, by Mr Ernest B. Smith, M.A., 
Glasgow, of the well-known eight lines beginning — " It's a bonnie bay." 

These "alia-land-anoj 'only touched at three places in Scotland, viz. 
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Rothesay. T bey were heartily welcomed. 
No one in the happy party was looked upon as a foreigner, tho' most 
had never been in Britain before, few of the southrons had been so'far 
north, and the pronunciation of the Gaelic place-names was a puzzle 
to all. Another pleasant feature of tnis enjoyable " ekskurso," was a 
competition as to the best pronunciation of the word "Tighnabruaich," 
(a pier called at in the circumnavigation of Bute), by means of Esper- 
anto letters." After the visitors had returned to their native land*, 
several, in expressing special thanks for the courtesies extended, took 
occasion to write that the original words of "Auld Langsyne" were 
still ringing in then- ears.* 

Esperanto is like an up-to-date perfectly kept garden, where root- 
words of other languages, transplanted from their jungle, are scien- 
tifically made intelligible for the universal use of all human beings. 

"The English language could be as easily acquired through the phonetic 
alphabet.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY 

This Directory now-a-days contains the. information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years. The Bute Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent annual. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One adition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for probable additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue ? 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

The Popularity of 

Hig'g'ie's Scots Publications. 

Typical letter from abroad : — 

Montreal, July 29th, 1913. 
" I was sh own a copy of your publication, 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, 
while up country, and am desirous of possessing a few of those interest- 
ing books ; so realistically depicting places I have visited, and 'brither 
Scots.' . Kindly inform me if such can be procured in this country or 
U.S.A., and, if so, where? I would not mind going 500 or 600 miles to 

fet a few of your small books — so full of interest to the fellow Scot men 
come in contact with here. . . The party who showed me their cop y 
had it for years. I shall be glad if you let me know if you issue other 
Publications along the same lines as the ABC 'Resorts of Scotland." 

Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. 

Generous Terms to Scottish Societies throughout 
the world 



These Publications are appreciated by intelligent persons outside 

Scottish connection, and we sent, direct from our head office, 

copies of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts, &o., 

to the Red Cross Hospitals in Scotland, 

giving a welcome to the brave Sailors and Soldiers who had been 
fighting in the Great War for Peace on Earth and Good Will to 
Men, and we received many thanks for our consideration. 



THE 

INTERNATIONAL 

LANGUAGE. 



This international language, ESPERANTO, having emerged through 
indifference, ridicule, opposition and rivalry, and its practical useful- 
ness been repeatedly demonstrated, some information regarding its 
present position may not be uninteresting to the general public — for 
whose benefit it is intended, and that fact is proved wherever tried. 

Esperanto Congresses have been held annually since 1906 at Bou- 
logne-sur-Mer, France ; Geneva, Switzerland ; Cambridge, England ; 
Dresden, Germany; Barcelona. Spain; Washington, U.S.A.; Antwerp, 
Belgium; and Cracow, Polish Austria. The ninth met in 1913 at 
Berne, Switzerland; while the 1914 Kongreso would have been held 
in Paris but for the intervention of the world war ; and Bonnie Scot- 
land was fixed for the 1915 rendezvous. The world will, it is to b« 
hoped, soon be purged from the subtle and arrogant military hatred, 
greed, " kultur," and " frightfulness ; " but the set-back will pass 
away, and humanity will yet see the Sun of Righteousnes arise with 
healing in His wings, and the promised peace on earth and good-will to 
men shall reign "where'er the sun doth his successive 'journeys run." 

These international assemblages have increasingly led, and in the 
future will more and more increasingly lead, to post Congressional 
Excursions throughout the land chosen for the annual rendezvons. 

Besides these annual international Esperanto Congresses, there are 
national gatherings in many lands, and local social meetings galore. 
The young and vigorous Universala Esperanto Asocio has had five an- 
nual Congresses: the first was most appropriately held in Europe, but 
in America it simultaneously had a demonstration. The Universala 
Esperanto Asocio is a thoroly practical institution. Thro' its widely- 
eiroulated fortnightly newspaper, and its delegates, vice-delegates and 
sub-delegates, consuls, Esperanto offices, enterprises and associations 
represented in many cities and towns of different lands, it manages 
departments for scientific research, and the many forms of business and 
social intercourse among the inhabitants of all nations. Besides these 
rapidly growing activities, there are the organisations of the individual 
national societies, with their hundreds of periodical publications and 
translations of standard works into the key language — which anyone 
may understand and enjoy. 

Annual meetings of Esperantists have been held in many countries' 
during the Great War, at which sam-ide-anoj from other lands were 
welcomed, but no Ititernacia Kongreso was held since 1915 — when, at 
San Francisco, in connection with the opening of the Panama Canal, 
the Tuta Pacfico became La Tut a Mondo Kongreso. 

The country (i.e., France) whose language is adopted for interna- 
tional diplomacy is leading in its propaganda of this language— the com- 
mon and direct bond of reciprocal communication between all willing 
members of the human family. GEO. HIGGIE, Deligito, U.E.A. 



Several newspapers on the Continent, the British Isles, the Colonies and t«s 
Americas, regularly print Esperanto articles with a translation, for the benefit of tl.eii 
readers. The following is from the "Stirling Sentinel " of 5th March, 1907, being, 
the translation of a recently-received post-card, containing a spontaneous appreciation 
of what has the distinction of being the first national guide-book in the international 



"To Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers in Rothesay, Scotland. 

Esteemed friends, - An unforseen opportunity has allowed me to read tnrougn th\. 
brochure published by you about Bonnie Scotland in the Esperanto language. Thus- 
little book I have read several times : by its description of Scotland it has afforded me 
much pleasure : by it I have begun to know your beautiful country - the character of 
the people of Scotland, its manners, its religion. I have begun to know about the 
degree of Scottish civilisation, about its superior literature in science and art, its com- 
munal organisations, such as banks and public offices ; about Scottish industry, and 
many other things. Hearty thanks to you, gentlemen, for so beautiful publications in 
the Esperanto language. By such, a work you prove that Esperanto is useful for inter- 
national relations, and for a fraternisation of the peoples of divers nationalities. 

I triumph now for the success of Esperanto, but before I had to bear much for it> 
name. People have mocked at me, blamed me, annoyed me, and even insulted me, but 
I bore everything obstinately, and preached our idea. I am no longer mocked at: 
am praised. Accept from me, worthy sirs, my sincere greeting." 

Russia, 1906. T. E. Moskch'ckjjk.0. 

this shows how thoroughly practical Esperanto is, and what a beneficial and inter- 
national future it has before it. The above is not a rarity to Messrs Higgie and othet 
Esperantists, but an ordinary occurrence. An Esperantist has the whole world — irrers 
pective of belief, language or country — before him. and all desire better aeominfanc*.

Estimataj Samideanoj, 
Ne autauvidebla okazo permesis al mi tralegi libreton eldonatan de vi pri Belega 
Skotlando ( 'Bonnie Scotland's Resorts') en lingvo Esperanto. Tiun 6i libreton mi legis 
kelkfoje ; gi, per sia priskribo pri Skotlando, liveiis al mi multan plezuron ; per gi 
mi bone ekkonis dan belan landon ; mi ekkonis kavakteron de popolo skotlanda, giajn

ture, pri scienco kaj arto: pri komunaj organizacioj, kiel bankoj kaj postoj ; pn skota 
industrio, kaj pri mnltaj aliaj. Koran dankon al vi, sinjoroj, por tiel belaj ildonoj en 
liogva Esperanto. Per tia eldono vi pruvas ke Esperanto estas utila por internaciaj 
rilatoj kaj por fratigo de diversnaciaj popoloj. 

Nun mi triumfas pri tiaj sukcesoj de Esperanto, sed arnfif. mi multe toleris de gia

Al Sinjoroj Higgie kaj K-io., Rotseo, Skotlando. 

Altestimataj Sinjoroj, — Ni ricevis vian boavolan donacon el satindaj libreto " Belega 
Skotlando " k;ij belega ilustrajaro " Skotlanda Pejzago," pro kin ni tutkore danka>: 
vin. Tiuj viaj eldonoj tre placas al ni, ne sole pro la belaj yidajoj enhavataj ; sed 
ankau tial, ke via belega lando, lau vi, tre similas je nia lando de la Sunlevigo. Oni 
diras, ke Japanujo estas la "'Svisujo de la Oriento ;" sed ni pensas, ke la Svisa pejzago 
devas esti el kontinenta karaktero, dum Japanujo estas insnla lando same kiel via ; 
tial pliguste oni dim ke Japanujo estas la " Skotlando de la Oriento." La Skotlando en 
la Oriento ankau havas multe da vidajoj nekonataj de la mondo. Ni volas sekvi vian 
ekzemplon, dank' al vi, okaze de la malfermo de la Granda Ekspozicio en Tokio en 
1912a, kiam sajne granda amaso da fremduloj alvenos tien 6i. Ni disdonos vian 
libreto ju inter niaj grupoj kaj asocianoj, kiuj same kun ni satos ilin. 

Ript'tante esprimon de niaj dankoj, kun plena saluto, kore via,

5.0 Messrs Higgle & Co., Rothesay Scotland. r 

Highly esteemed Sirs, — We received your good wishes and donation of prizeworthy 
booklets, ' ; Bonnie Scotland " in the Esperanto language, and beautiful illustration* 
of " Scottish Scenery," for which we heartily thank you. These publications of yourj 
are very pleasing to us, not only on account of the beautiful views contained in them., 
but also for the reason that your beautiful land, according to you, is very similar to oui 
" Land of the Rising Sun." They say that Japan is the " Switzerland in the Orient, " 

but we think flvi* the Swiss Scenery must necessarily be of a continental character, 
while Japan is 4a insular land similar to yours, therefore it would be more correct to 
say that J~paa is the " Scotland in the Orient." The " Scotland in the Orient " ha» 
also many news unknown by the world. We wish to follow your example, thanks to 
you, by pnbliaiang a book of views of Japanese Scenery, on the occasion of the opening 
of the Great Exhibition in Tokio in 1912, when seemingly a large throng of foreigners 
will come thither. We will distribute your booklets sent us among our groups and 
association Members, who, similarly to us, will prize them. Again expressing oar 
thanks with f"jll salutation, heartily yours, 

T. Cheef, Ed., " Japanese Esperantist."

A few comments on 1918-19 issue. 

The Commercial Library, 21 Miller Street, Glasgow, 
18th July, 1918. 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Publishers, Rothesay. 

We have to thank you for the copy of the Bute County Directory, addressed to 
the Stirling Library. Since November, 1916, all Directories have been transferred to 
The COMMERCIAL LIBRARY, 21 Miller Street. This lib-aryhas been established 
for the use of business men, and. as since its opening, we have had over 49,000 visit- 
tors, more than one-third of whom consulted the Directories, you will appreciate the 
publicity your Directory obtains. — Yours faithfully Jno Phillifs Librai;an. 

That now old-established annual, " The Bute Coun.j Directdy, has just been 
published for 1918-19 by Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. No fresh commendation 
is required of a publication whose usefulnes is so widely recognised. The county and 
burghal information, the agricultural and fishery statistics, and the lists of public 
officials and society office-bearers and traders are as complete and accurate as in the 
preceding issues — the only difference from which is that trie lists of householders have, 
on this occasion, been omitted*. This saves paper, which is a scarce and valuable com- 
modity in these days. Messrs Higgie point out that the early official publication of 
the new voters' roll will supply the want of the private list. — Evening Times, 19th 
July, 1918. 

As a compendium of information about the county of Bute, the admirably-com- 
piled little annual, the Bate County Directory, issued by Messrs Higgie & Co., pub- 
lishers, Rothesay, has always borne a high reputation, and the latest issue— for 1918- 
19 — shows no diminution in interest and value. The contents include county and 
burghal information, anniversaries, etc., agricultural and fishery statistics, lists of 
public officials and society office-bearers and traders, and a host of other items con- 
nected with the county. The cost is still one shillingf. — Ardrossan and Saltcoats 
Weekly Herald, 26th July, 1918. 

The new edition for 1918-19 of this useful local manual has just been issued by 
Messrs Higgie & Co., Rothesay. The county and burghal information, lists of public 
officials, society office-bearers and traders is as complete as formerly, the only difference 
being that on this occasion the list of householders is omitted*. The early publica- 
tion of the voters' lists will, howeveiyemedy the omission. — Buteman, Aug. 2, 1918. 
The Bute County Directory for 1918-19 came to hand last week. Despite all the 
disadvantages of paper shortage and labour scarcity, Messrs Higgie, the publishers , 
•eem to have kept the publication as full as formerly*. It contains lists of all the pub- 
lic bodies and officials in the various parishes of Bute, besides a trades directory for 
Rothesay, North Bute and Cumbrae. We have often said that the Directory must 
be found invaluable by all who have any connection with the county, and we canonly 
repeat the statement. B sides the information we have referred to, there is the usual 
calendar with all the outstanding local anniversaries mentioned. The price remains, 
as in former years, at the modest shillingf. — Largs and Millport Weekly News, 3rd 
August, 1918.
